Announcing cancer is like death sentence. Especially for Mrs. Wilson because her husband died for cancer. Mrs. Wilson coild not see her situation is real. Having cancer was too painful to her. Mrs. Wilson described that it was easier to do that if you pretended that it wasn't real, if you pretended it was all on TV.
Mrs. Wilson lost being female because she had breast and uterus cancer. She coundn't enjoy normal life because she couldn't eat. Diarrhea in the bed was the worst humiliation. Moreover, tests at the hospital wiped out the last of her physical and emotional stamina. Living became pain.
Mrs. Wilson thought nobody really cared about her. She thought that people just came to the hospital and gave her flowers and various intrusions at all hours. These people really don't care whetehr she is really sick or not. But Mrs. Wilson realized she needed love in order to fight against cancer. The doctors seemed not human being because they just do thier job, and it wasn't really a big deal if their paitents die. The medicine makes her sick. Love is only relif for her.
Nobody wants to die because people are afraid fo death. Mrs. Wilson also didn't want to die. She wanted to live. (I guess that's why the title is I Want to Live!) But I think she was relifed when she died. She didn't need to fight against cancer anymore, and she might able to meet her husband.
Her son-in-law asked to Mrs. Wilson "What does it feel like? Does it feel like a hangover? Worse than a hangover? Not like a hangover?" My mother had cancer and I often went to the hospital to see her. But I think I think I did not understand her how it is like having cancer. If I have cancer, I think I will feel differently.
Do you think Mrs. Wilson had Will to Live or tired of cancer treatment?
Do you think Mrs. Wilson was relieved when she died?
